World Cup 2010 Predictions: Group E
An interesting groups where Holland should have no problem getting on the top spot.
The first game is on the June 14th between the Netherlands and Denmark at 12:30 BST.
The second one is in the same day but at later time between Japan and Cameroon.
Denmark is mostly favored by the bookmakers for taking the 2nd spot and qualifying. Cameroon has slightly higher odds, but they have similar chances as Denmark.
The total underdog here is considered to be Japan, that has no traditions in this sport. What will happen who knows?!
Here are the odds in BETFAIR.COM for this group:
|Group E||Team:||Group Winner Odds:||To Qualify:|
Netherlands, topped group 9 from the qualification rounds in Europe with full active of 24 points in 8 games. It’s only logical to consider that they will qualify and top this group as well. That 1.68 sure seems tempting and can be even combined with that 1.20 for larger profit. The accumulated odds are 2.016, and I am definitely laying some serious cash here.
Denmark is not to be under-estimated! After all they finished first in the same group with Portugal and Sweden, and no one thought they will even make the 2nd spot. I would personally take that 2.02 to qualify and bet on it, or combine it with similar bets in other groups.
Cameroon, has as good chances as Denmark to qualify, not to mention the fact that since the tournament is held on the African continent, the crowd support for Cameroon will be a lot bigger. This actually might give them an advantage for qualifying, so I would take their odds over Denmark’s.
Japan is considered to be the underdog here. But just because they are seen as this way, it doesn’t necessarily make it true. It’s been proven over the years that, there are no weak teams on the World Cup Finals. To be there you have to be good, thus under-estimating the Asian team will be foolish. Odds are quite high, and I think the draw wasn’t fortunate for them, putting them in such hard group.
This is what we think will happen in this group:
|Group A||Group B||Group C||Group D||Group E||Group F||Group G||Group H|
